It seems that the world we live in has not yet mastered all its secrets, especially in some areas, with difficult natural conditions, like the South Pole. Scientists speculate that there are unknown organisms there.
Australian scientists said on Friday (September 8) that there could be unknown organisms in Antarctica formed by volcanoes. Scientists from the Australian National University have found traces of DNA, algae, small animals and other unknown organisms deep into the caves, formed by the vapor from the Erebus volcano on Ross Island.
"The atmosphere can be very warm in the caves, where the temperature reaches 25 degrees Celsius in some caves," said Seredwin Fraser, a senior researcher at the University of Vienna's Environment and Society University, in a statement. "You can wear a T-shirt Inside and feel comfortable ... there is light near the cave openings, in addition to the sunlight flowing down to the depths of some caves. "
According to the same spokesman, most of the DNA inside the caves was similar to the DNA of plants and animals - including algae and invertebrates - found elsewhere in Antarctica, but it is not possible to fully determine all sequences of nucleic acids.
"The results of this study give us a puzzling view of what can live under the ice," he said. "In Antarctica there could be new species of animals and plants."
